    During a ride this past weekend, I was "two-up" with my wife on the back when we reached this nasty big hill. Everything was going fine, except that I didn't have quite enough revs going into it and she started to ping about 3/4 of the way up. It was too steep to stop, so I just kept going, with the poor little engine pinging away for about another 30 seconds before I reached the top.



    Now I know that pinging is not something you want to encourage or a full-time basis (and I don't) but I am just curious if I might have done any major damage with this?



    She ran OK for the rest of the day...

    Ping beats the top of the piston pretty good. Next time, simply downshift.

    I've spent most of a hot day 'pinging' (in Australian slang that has a different meaning..... ) with the Mrs on the back and loaded up. That was over 10,000k's ago - so doing it once, is nothing to worry about.

    +1 on immediately downshifting. More RPM is the solution.

    LOL...I clicked on this, thinking it was a new topic and thought to myself, Hey...I can relate to this! Then I realize it was my original post!



    As I recall at the time, I WAS in first gear (it was a really steep hill)....
